Internet Explorer, as well as Windows apps using JavaScript in Windows 8, adds support for several new Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) features, including new advanced layout, visual effects, and panning and zooming capabilities. This trend began with Windows Internet Explorer 8 (full compliance with the Cascading Style Sheets, Level 2 Revision 1 (CSS2.1) standard) and continued with Windows Internet Explorer 9 (support for CSS rounded corners, multiple background images, new color models and opacity, Cascading Style Sheets, Level 3 (CSS3) Fonts and Web Open Font Format (WOFF), 2-D Transforms, Media Queries, CSS3 Namespaces, and more).
